at the way it plays out. romney will say, "yes, i do have a deficit plan. go look on my website. it's there. it's true." which puts the burden on the audience. i wish they would go to your website because they won't find out the answer at mitt romney's website. >> but then we come to the second part of the process that protects. you heard in the debates candidates saying, "that's not true. check the record. check the transcript," and an invitation essentially to go to the fact checkers and journalism. to the extent that this year we've had a lot of fact checking in tioal journalism, a lot mo than we'vhad in previous years. and we know now after the first three debates. last time i talked to you it was, it was only a hypothesis, that the people who said they went to the fact checking sites or went to journalism for fact checking on the web, were more likely to accurately be able to portray the candidates' positions and those exchanges in which somebody was alleging deception. romney, his plan largely doesn't add up. obama did not apologize around the world, if by apologize you mean said, "i'
any kind of sanity o debt and deficit without that is beyond my comprehension. >> maybe he doesn't believe that, either. >> mark made excellent put on this, that if we get this solved, it would be better with barack obama as president and mitt romney. he is so dug into his position. he is so dug into his position that i not see how he could get an agreement. behalf,tt romney's don't li thaimusroun ve to -- doesn't the fact that he does move are out work to his advantage? >> democratic senate, republican house, which he washy president, it i -- wishy washy and, it could be the makings of a deal. >> not if you have a president who is not willing to lean on his own party. obama has been willing to do that. the question is if romney would be willing to lean on his tea party wing. >> are we going to have a democratic senate? >> white and looks increasiny like we will have a democratic -- once again in looks and charisma and like we will have a democratic senate, and the rebel against have once again blown it by not putting -- the republicans have once again blunted by nominating peopl
the payment of tax grants. the move comes as it looks increasingly unlikely to pass a bill to issue deficit covering bonds. the main opposition parties are against it. the bonds are necessary to implement the budget. government officials say they could run out of money by the end of november unless it's passed. it was scheduled on friday to allocate $27 billion to prefectures and $24 billion to municipalitie municipalities. some tax grants due in september have already been deferred. people in cash strapped municipalities can expect the latest delay to expect financing and disrupt public services. that's all for me for now. i'll leave you with the markets this tuesday here in asia. >>> the discussion included disputed islands in the south china sea. they agree to continue talks to establish a declaration of conduct with their will to resolve the issue peacefully. countries have been asking china to agree to a legal biding code of conduct governing behavior in the disputed region. they have failed to reach substantial progress over the issue. china has been reluctant to establish a code of c
and dealing with the debt and the deficit and i think days democrats spend on this issue have helped them with some voters for sure, and maybe they felt they were doing the right thing morally, but i am not sure it helped them as best it could have to achieve their ultimate goal which is winning the election by talking about the future. >> rose: so in many ways, i saw something that chris rock had said actually in playbook today, which was interesting he said here is a guy who did this, this, and this, and yet everybody tells him not to run on his record. and you talk about osama bin laden and he talked about gm and all of those kind of things yet people are saying don't run on the record, if it was a referendum on his record he will lose. >> well, i think the president talks about all of the things chris rock tweeted about in the convention, and in the campaigns communications, elections are about the future, not about the past and i think the most signicant poll number in the last two weeks, i don't think you and i have discussed this is wall street journal, nb. c poll that asked do you
, record deficits, and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. wt governor romney's offering is a return to picies that have failed us in the past. he's now talking about them as "big changes." they're a repeat... a relapse of things that haven't worked for american families for over a decade now. >> brown: with both sides promising to revitalize the economy, there's one more important report yet to come: the jobs numbers for october will be released next friday, just four days before voters head to the polls. earlier today, i talked about the new government economic report with hugh johnson, head of an investment and advisory firm in albany, new york. hugh, welcome. first the good news, where is the growth coming from? >> well, you know, there are a lot of places. but i think probably the best news is that, you know, consumer spending is about 70% of our economy. we saw that strengthen in the third quarter. that's very good news. i think there are a couple of really-- parts of that first of all residential real estate or housing, we know the numbers have been getting better.
in order to pay for it. democrats tend to want to tax a little more for that or add to the deficit because of the emergency. >> ifill: chris christie as the governor of new jersey who the president will be traveling with torrow looking at hurricane damage, you can only assume that that will be many levels interpretation of that particular meeting. he said he would like to reschedule halloween but it's not possible to reschedule an election, is it? >> it is technically possible to reschedule elections on a state-by-state basis but i don't think we're going to need that. the date on which the election is held actually set by federal law rather than the constitution. congress could change that date. there's actually provision for, if a state doesn't get its vote in on time, basically for the state legislature to make a decision about which electors to send to vote for president. so there are actually ways for that to happen. i just don't think anybody is that the a point right now. >> ifill: if you're in massachusetts or connecticut and your constituents don't have power, they're not watching
in how people vote. it's first and foremost, what are we going to do with this debt and this deficit? that's mostly what i have worked on the house over the past 12 years. >> reporter: meanwhile, richard carmona's most obvious political asset is his life story. born in new york to pueo rican parents, carmona lived homeless as a child and dropped out of high school. he joined the u.s. army and became a decorated vietnam veteran before attending medical school. he was eventually appointed surgeon general by president george w. bush. carmona also served as sheriffs deputy along the u.s. border with mexico. democrats hope that bipartisan background can appeal to the independents, who make up a third of the state's voters. the candidate talks about republican efforts to recruit him while he served in as rgeon genel. >> the republican party did ask me to become a republican. i said why? i was an independent my whole life, because i always thought that there were good sides-- both sides had good solutions to problems. unfortunately, we got so partisan now that democracy's in the gridlock, b
in here at the white house for a big deficit reduction and debt reduction package. >> narrator: bipartisanship was long buried. now therwas en aagonm. >> when that collapsed and when that ended up in that terribly muddy compromise that nobody liked, i think that was the turn. i think at that point he and everybody around him decided, "this isn't working and we're not going to work this way." >> and the american people i think are fed up with political posturing and an inability for politicians to take responsible action as opposed to dodge their responsibilities. >> we've seen his approval ratings on the economy dip... >> narrator: three and half years after he came to washington on a promise of change... >> obama is under 50% approval rating... >> narrator: ... barack obama returned to the campaign trail himself changed. >> a difficult road ahead for the president... >> i think you see today a president obama with a thicker skin, more jaundiced eyes, has grown more skeptical, even cynical perhaps, about washington. >> no president has been reelected with this type of economy s
